On behalf of Ton Alliance we wanted to thank @Platon for the amazing job on tonswap research https://forum.freeton.org/t/research-of-transactions-by-tonswap-io-and-initial-members/11527/4.
All of the initial members of ton alliance are in effective communications with other initial members regarding moving to a new super exciting phase of FreeTON with new rust validator node and its ground-breaking speeds and scalability potential shown on the testnet, new approach to consensus and governance, more defi, nft and other types of projects launching in the ecosystem, coming listings on coinmarketcap and binance, new wallet integrations and many other exciting things to come.
But unfortunately as we can see, not all the initial members are active participants in this coming phase and probably some are already tired and want to quit. At the same time we see many governance and institutional players bringing a lot of value and adoption to the network and ecosystem despite being part of the initial governance, but who seek for a deeper participation in the future of FreeTON.
Thus Ton Alliance proposal is to ask Platon make a similar research on the work of initial members. Based on this research we propose to make a new Main Governance, including those who actively participated in the development of FreeTON, excluding those who failed for some reason to contribute to the network and adding those who on the contrary helped the network adoption despite being the initial member. Moreover we’d like to establish more clear rules for the next inclusions and exclusions to the main governance and get rid of the initial governance as it would serve no purpose anymore.
P.S. We are of aware of going to SMV contracts and governance 2.0 phase but to have better traction before we reach this crucial point, we’d like to make some changes now. And at this time we can’t say for sure that there won’t be elections for initial and other governances when Governance 2.0, so having a list of active initial members might be a nice thing to have when the transition happens.
